Valmaggiore Roero DOCG Riserva Vintage 2019


Roero is a small paradise made up of sandy dunes in yellow ochre clay tones covered with green vineyards, all of which combine to create a magical and enchanted landscape.

The vineyard traditions in the Roero territory were the inspiration for this denomination and have their roots set deeply over time.

Roero is made from pure Nebbiolo grapes, which reach their apex in Barolo and Barbaresco, and in Roero produce a rare fine and elegant wine which has experienced great success over only a few years time.

The geographical mention Valmaggiore is the most famous cru in the municipality of Vezza d’Alba. This area can be recognised by its extreme slope, which requires only manual work, and it is the most important and vocated area for the production of Nebbiolo on the left side of the Tanaro.
